initdb fails

I´m trying to run postgreSQL 7.4.13 on cygwin under Windows XP.


I compile the source and install postgre, but when I run initdb it fails:


creating template1 database in /usr/local/pgsql/data/base/1...

bin/initdb: line 644:  1752 Bad system call         "$PGPATH"/postgres -boot



initdb: failed


I’ve read some about ipc services and think maybe that’s the problem. In the
latest cygwin version there’s no ipc-daemon nor ipc-daemon2 command. Instead
there’s cygserver. I’ve tried running the cygserver before and after
installation, but initdb always fails.


Anybody knows what could be the problem?
